First Dates star Merlin Griffiths appeared to be in good spirits today (June 14) at Royal Ascot.

The TV star, who rose to fame as the bartender on the show First Dates, announced in September that he had been diagnosed with bowel cancer.

As a result, fans have been wishing for his recovery and keeping a close eye on the barman.

Merlin dressed up for Royal Ascot today and headed down to enjoy the festivities with former Love Island star Dr Alex George.

“Serving up to the brilliant @DrAlexGeorge at the @HarrogateSpring Mindful Drinking bar at #RoyalAscot2022!” wrote Merlin in a post on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Merlin has been very open about his cancer journey.

He previously described the heartbreaking moment he had to reveal his diagnosis to his seven-year-old daughter Alix.

He said: “I said: ‘Dad’s got cancer’. She said: ‘Is that bad, Dad?’

“I said, ‘Yes, it’s very serious but I think it should be okay. Modern medicine’s great and if anything changes I’ll let you know.’

“She understands that people can die but I told her cancer comes in different varieties and in different ways too – and that many people come through it.”

Following his robotic surgery, he told fans: “Now for real #cancer recovery. I’ve had open laparotomies before and the recovery was 6 weeks in hospital before robotic surgery!! Amazing.”

Back in April he shared the brilliant news that his tumour had “gone”.
